Pentax Optio S55

Pentax is a name that many people consider synonymous with photography, thus we would have expected it to do a little more with the Optio S55. It's not that the S55 is an awful camera, but it just doesn't offer the same performance as many of the oth...

Pentax Optio S5z

Pentax's Optio S5z is essentially an upgraded version of the S55, which we have also reviewed on the site. For around $100 more you get a host of improved features that are definitely worth the extra money.

Panasonic DMC-FX9

One of the things we love about the 6 megapixel DMC-FX9 is its looks. The DMC-FX9 comes in a sleek, compact silver chassis and feels extremely solid. It is about the size of a pack of cards, and slips comfortably into a pocket or small bag.

Kodak EASYSHARE V550 Zoom

This Kodak EASYSHARE V550 Zoom performs extremely well in terms of image quality, yet falls down in several other key areas.

Kodak EASYSHARE V530 Zoom

The V530 is a divergence from the larger, plastic models Kodak has been so fond of in the past. Its sleek metallic design creates the impression of a great camera, and this time Kodak are definitely on the right track.

Canon IXUS i zoom

Canon's 5 megapixel IXUS i zoom is one of the best looking camera models we've ever seen. It is tiny and cased matte black metal with silver rimming, and has a 1.8" LCD that is particularly good in dark conditions. The IXUS looks like it belongs on t...

Kenwood SAT6100

Kenwood's SAT6100 setup is essentially an upgrade to its 5.1 surround model, the SAT5100, and thus differs very little from its predecessor. It suffers some of the same problems, but also shows a little improvement.

Nikon Coolpix 7600

The Nikon Coolpix 7600 is a mixed bag. On one hand, it offers great picture quality in a compact model, but on the other hand it lacks the features, functions and style of several of its competitors.

Pentax *ist DL

When the Pentax *ist DL came into the office, the first problem we encountered was exactly how we were going to talk about it. How does one pronounce *ist DL? Browsing the Internet revealed everything from "star-ist-dee-ell" to "eye-ess-tee". We here...

Nikon D50 Digital SLR

Nikon's D50 is yet another model that falls into the cracks between the advanced and professional cameras. It offers a full range of manual controls while retaining enough automated functions to allow a user to gradually step up the amount of involve...

Sony Cyber-shot DSCS90

The Cyber-shot DSCS90 is quite a reasonable camera, despite only being 4 megapixels in a category packed with models as high as 8 megapixels. It isn't a camera that shines in any one area, but it is a package that would please many people.

Sony Cyber-shot DSCW5

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCW5 is both physically and functionally impressive. Weighing nearly 200g, it is one of the larger 5 megapixel models we've seen, but it's not as large as some of the 10X zoom models. It is housed in a black or silver aluminium c...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P200

This camera is packed full of features. It has the versatility to suit the whole family, from complete beginners to experienced photographers, as it offers a huge range of customisable options. You can have everything automated or maintain complete m...

Ricoh Caplio R2

Ricoh's Caplio R2 is a truly sophisticated-looking camera. In terms of function, it is a fairly standard point-and-shoot model, but the design and the feel of the camera are way ahead of the competition.

Ricoh Caplio 400G

Ricoh's Caplio 400G seems to rely upon novelty value to attract customers. It is dubbed as a water-resistant, highly durable camera and when looking at the cost, feature set and camera as a whole, it becomes clear there is not much else on offer. Unf...

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
